    Just some questions...

    Wow, I'm actually really happy that I found this site.
    I'm afraid to say I haven't seen my doctor for quite some time. Probably too long.
    I was hoping that someone could help me with some questions I have. I had my surgery in Feb. 2000 when I was 13, with a S curve being somewhere around 70 and 29 degrees. Recently, though, I've been having pain up and down my back, with an itch that I just can't pinpoint on my back *frustrating!*. I've had this before multiple times and normally it just goes away, but every time it comes, it concerns me. Does anyone know if this is just normal? Or should I contact my doctor about it? I'm hoping I can get away with just one surgery!
    Any help you guys could lend would be great! Thanks!

    Hi Birdie...

    You should definitely see a specialist if you have new pain. I think that itches that can't be scratched have to do with nerves that were cut. I have the same problem from time to time, and think that it's nothing about which we need to worry.

    Regards,
    Linda

    Thanks, Linda.
    The pain isn't anything new. It comes and goes. I was just wondering if it was normal. My doctor isn't located in the same state as am, so I think I'll just wait until the next time he comes up and see him then.
    Sounds like that itch is just something I'll have to deal with, haha .
